Some Remarks
ALADDIN's built-in constants are:
Name Value Purpose ============================================================ DEG 57.29577951308 Radians to degrees conversion E 2.718281828459 GAMMA 0.577215664901 PI 3.141592653589
Example 1 : The script of code
print "1 radian = ", DEG, "degrees \n"; quit;generates the output
1 radian = 57.3 degrees
Example 2 : To compute the area of a circle, we coupld write:
radius = 3 cm; area = PI*radius*radius; print "circle radius = ", radius, "\n"; print "circle area = ", area (cm^2), "\n"; quit;The program output is:
circle radius is = 3 cm circle area is = 28.27 cm^2
